Im sure there are guys running Carbon and Mags with no issues. I just do not want to have to worry about stress fractures, xrays, and replacement.
Wise decision. When I was running Marvic mags on a TZ 250 in '78, my mentor Roland Cushway recommended X-Rays once a year. On a side note, yesterday on Barf, I read a post where someone claimed to have run his mags on the street for 16 years with no issues. It becomes a question of what you think your life is worth and what you are willing to gamble on.
If I had carbon fiber wheels, I'd need a no-mar tire changer or better. If someone put a stress crack in them that killed me, it would have to be me.
Edit: I suppose if there was a dealer that sold only carbon fiber wheels, changed tires for customers and they had a 3 year record of "no failures," I'd trust 'em.
